Ever since I stopped smoking, I’ve noticed in conversations, in other stop smoking books, and in discussions on the internet, that the vast majority of those who are trying, or have tried to stop smoking almost always speak of it in terms of a battle.
A fight, a struggle, a continuous war of wills, where the smoker has to exercise an astonishing strength of mind to defeat a seemingly insurmountable enemy.
One of the first things you must learn in the secret art of stopping smoking is this.
Such an approach is totally wrong.
Even worse, it guarantees failure.
The most disturbing description I have come across of this apparent ‘struggle’ was “hell week”.
After I discovered just how easy it is to stop smoking, that description alone inspired me to write this blog, and my book. Why?
Because ‘hell week’ is a lie.
Or rather, it’s yet another trick perpetrated on your mind by the Nicotine Brigade to scare you into NOT stopping smoking!
